Feature Request: tab to next when entering tags

Post by JohnAtl »

When entering tags, it would be nice to be able to press the Tab key to move to the field to enter another tag.
Maybe there is a way to do this that I'm not aware of? (Besides entering a tag, pressing enter, clicking on the Tag field again.)

Thanks,
John

Just discovered the right-click to tag, which helps a lot.
Thanks,

I forgot to mention -- to accept the tag and immediately create another, press Enter (not Return).

Hi Jon,
Any idea why Enter doesn't move to the next tag?
Thanks,
John

As I said, Enter (note Return). You're pressing Return. I don't know on that virtual keyboard where the Enter key is. On my physical keyboard, it's at the bottom-right of the numeric keypad.

No, that’s Enter (fn+Return), notice that the symbol on the key changes to show it is Enter. Doesn’t work on my Bluetooth keyboard either.
Maybe numpad Enter is a different keycode?

I can't say to that. The ASCII for Enter is decimal 3 (it's 13 for Return).

For those of us without a numeric keypad, is there a key that will move to the next tag field?

Right now, just Enter. I could add another. Say, Tab.

In the next update pressing either Return or Enter while entering a tag will save it and automatically enable a new tag entry field so that you can enter another tag.
